Video Cards?

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctorfeelgood @ 10:25 pm

I was looking for something else and thought about this – my 6800GS OC isn’t available at newegg anymore, so I checked here and sweet – tigerdirect and amazon both have ’em. Of course, I would need $170 to go SLI. I am wondering if there are other cards that are $200 and are faster than SLI?

Hmm. I heard Tom’s Hardware was sold to someone. There is an awesome article there. I think the 6800GS’s replacement is the 7600GS. Even so, a 7900GT is faster than 2 7600GTs for an extra $60. The reviewer says the x1950xt is far better that a 7900GT but the graphs say otherwise. The 7900GT is 200-230 and the x1950xt is 230+. Hmmm. Either one kicks even a pair of my old cards. But then I have to throw one away . . . and I don’t know if my nvidia motherboard will like a Radeon plugged into it.  I don’t remember how that works . . .
